I am planning to prioritize pharm. quite not sure if path is very high yield. But i'll stick to everything first aid. I have read it like 3x before so it should take only 2 weeks to review everything.

How about you?

It would be good if we can get inputs from those whi are lready done with step 2ck.

I don't think doing a thorough revision of basic sciences is high yield, maybe pharm, immunodeficiencies, biostats and maybe heme path but that is pretty much it in my opinion. This of course only applies if you have taken step 1 beforehand. I took step 2ck recently, still waiting for my results.
